It's Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day- Yiipppeeee!!!!


Yes Kiddies, Its Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. WHAT????? You didn't know this????? Oh, my you poor dears. You must have lived such a sheltered life. Well, read on and I will elucidate you on some fine American Cuisine. 

Grilled cheese sandwiches have always been a delicious, toasted delight popular all across the world. Growing up this was a real treat. Of course back then “Wonder Bread” or whatever was on the ‘Day Old’ rack, and some yellow American Processed Cheese was the only components my mother needed. Add a can of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup, and you had a feast. 

Now in Commemoration, Celebration, and Certification of Grilled Cheese Lovers everywhere, we have our own holiday, Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. An Honored Day when it’s your sacred duty to indulge in one of these melted cheese gastronomical delights.
Now melting cheese on bread is not a new culinary concept. In fact it has been around since the time of the Romans. On the other hand, grilled cheese sandwiches of today didn’t become popular until the 1920s. With the dawning of processed cheese and sliced enriched white bread they became an American staple, which soon spread worldwide. Simple to make. Easy to cook almost anywhere.

So what is the best way to celebrate Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day? Simple, make and eat a grilled cheese sandwich. If you are a traditionalist, just put some cheese of your choice between two slices of bread. Butter the bread on BOTH sides. Slap that baby onto a hot fry pan, brown on both sides, till the cheese melts, and your DONE!!!! The Grilled Cheese purist in you will be satisfied for sure.

 BUT, if you are like us, some experimenting is in order. Tomorrow the the Panini Maker will get pulled out. Next, some Swiss Cheese will be sliced ever so thinly off our block of cheese, and then some aged cheddar will be added. These will be laid onto fresh Ciabatta rolls. Some sliced Beef Steak Tomatoes comes next, followed by slices of Avocado. 

A mix of Mayo and Horseradish Dijon will be spread inside. Then a little butter on each side of the Ciabatta and into the Panini Grill it goes. Sounding good huh!!!

So what are you waiting for?????? Let your inner child loose and make that Grilled Cheese Sandwich. You know you want too....... Just Say Cheese!!!!!

we love grilled cheese sandwiches and were both raised on them, that would be because we were raised in those days when it was discovered. we always had plenty of cheese as a child in KY because the govt gave it out to people there, big long blocks of it to combat hunger in the coal miners... daddy was the pastor and they kept us supplied with it as gifts... bread was 25 cents a loaf and soup was dime a can... i love grilled cheese with anything added from bacon and ham to burger.

I like both the sandwich and the soup. Unfortunately, that soup is supposedly shot with sugar through and through. I am the only one around here who likes tomato soup. What's not to like?

There's a place on campus that has them on the menu, so I'll have one for lunch. As I'm completely indifferent to soup, I'll avoid that!

Looking forward to lunch later!

Delish! Especially with tomato soup. My version is so pedestrian - I'll have to try that pressed version.

Looks wonderful!

A grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup is my favorite comfort food. I like nutmeg sprinkled on top of my soup.

We had a great tomato soup but unfortunately had a tuna sandwich with it. I will have to talk up the grilled cheese with my wife. Your sandwich looks pretty professional looking.

I wish I didn't come to these posts when I'm hungry. I might just have to go make one.
